Brilliant 3D artists to follow on Twitter

Greetings everyone, and thank you for viewing this gallery of artwork from my 3D, VR and AR artist colleagues. I was very happy with the response to this call for submissions, and I hope to make this a regular feature here on Saint Joan Creative Studio.

Want to make friends on Twitter? This is the best group of artists to be around. Be kind enough to share this post, as well as the artwork, on your favourite social media platforms. And, if you are on Twitter, engage with the posts so that your followers will see and appreciate them, too.

Zenshy, or Zen, as we call him, is one of the most popular artists in the NFT community because he has a great personality, a charming voice and is always there to support fellow artists. He is the first member of my “Special Voice Club” for Twitter Spaces, and if you hear him, you will understand why. He helped spread the word about this gallery showcase and I thank him very much for doing so. WAGMI.

As you view this gallery of artwork, remember that the #NFTCommunity on Twitter is one of the most close-knit and supportive groups around. If you want to see this in action, follow them and watch your timeline. They are professional artists who work together to offer each other practical advice and encouragement.

Bhushan Vishwas is the 23-year-old co-founder at CodemireGames, a game studio he runs full-time. He has been creating NFTs for more than 6 months. After the latest update, WordPress deleted my logo image, and if it were not for Bhushan, I would not have noticed that.

Something he always tells us is, “Stop saying thank you, we are family.” And because of that, I now have no words to express my gratitude to him for his warm support. A double feature for you, Bhushan, because you are amazing.

Magda Górska is a collage artist from Warsaw, Poland. The only tool she uses in her artistic work is a mobile phone. Apart from producing 3D art, she creates minimalist paintings. Her most recent collection is called, “A pillar of strength” and it is inspired by the power of the mind. I am awestruck by her minimalist, monochromatic style whenever it appears in my timeline.

Elnaz Mansouri is a Canadian 3D artist and photographer based in Reykjavik, Iceland. As you know, I am biased towards all things Icelandic, so when she introduced herself in a space I was cohosting, I quickly “captured” her. I had to duel with an astrophotographer to claim her as my own, and I am happy I won in the end. Elnaz is also a drone pilot. She sells non fungible tokens of her artwork on the exclusive invite-only platform, Foundation.

Aqmal was the first to respond to my call for submissions, and I want to thank them for that. They are a digital illustrator from Tangerang, Indonesia, and their non fungible tokens are featured on the tezos platform Hic et Nunc. If you feel adventurous, connect a tezos wallet (from your Google account, you have a Kukai Wallet) and buy something from their collection.

Beer is a 3D artist from Thailand. He makes music in various genres. His project goal is to complete 100 songs within this year. Please view his media folder on Twitter to see his artwork.

GIMME WORK loves skeletons and biblical references, so I knew we would get along. In the Last Supper Skeleton, he gives a twist to an old favourite. Great imagination, awesome work.

NRN (artwork featured at the topmost section of this tweet) is an artist whose work you love to crave. Enigmatic, elusive, and mysterious. The definition of a muse. Follow them on Twitter for more fabulous art.

Antony Joseph is an automotive enthusiast and die cast model hobbyist. His sleek style and mysterious presentation make him seem otherworldly, and not “just another human being”. He was kind enough to share some of his 3D artwork with us. He has been an artist for 8 years and is now exploring his way into NFTs. He looks forward to connecting with you, so please visit his profile and make friends.

What is exciting about Subin K is that he is a self-taught CGI artist and game developer who works with augmented and virtual reality programs. He resides in Kozhikode, India, and works very hard to perfect his craft. He is only 21 years old, which means he has plenty of time to captivate a global audience.

Architect, author, computational designer and music enthusiast. His work is so vivid and detailed, it is hard to tell that it is all made up. I am happy to feature his work, especially because he supported me as I was trying to reach 3000 followers. After that, we hung out in a space together. Thank you for everything, Arjun.

Say hello to Cat, sculpture artist from Thailand who creates 3D concept art, visual art, and character art. They will be creating non fungible tokens of their 3D artwork for the time being.

Hitendra is a self-taught 3D artist from India who makes high poly 3D cars in the Blender app. He regularly showcases samples of his work on Twitter. Above, you can see him sharing his work in the thread of a well-known collector of NFTs. We all have to showcase our work, and eventually, after much practice, we will become experts at it.

Meet Mint from Thailand. Their NFT concept is “Bring your childhood to heal yourself”. They promise that this “Tale of Tail” collection will make you a smile and relax from your hard days. This presentation is accompanied by a sketch of the animated work. As you can see, it takes a lot of work to get to the final presentation.

And finally, say hello to Luchong, a Nigerian artist who draws all of her 3D faces on her phone. Here, she is showcasing artwork from his collection “Thea”. It is a collection that portrays the diverse beauty of dark-skinned African women in a unique style. It goes without saying that talent goes beyond boundaries, and I believe that we are all richer for the diversity that exists in our world.

Thank you for viewing this gallery. I hope that you enjoyed this presentation. Please give these artists your support by sharing this blog post to your socials. See you at the next showcase.

Scrum Mastered

Scrum for creative focus

Are your goals clearly defined? Your next step is to collaborate with likeminded individuals. Work with practical, updated information. Record results and refine your process as you go. To master the practice of scrum, recognise when it is necessary to regroup and realign. Then do it.

Screen caps from the desktop version

The first iteration of this installation was a mass of crawling text that broke WordPress. Yay! But after it broke my phone’s browser, I decided to update this post with a collage of screen caps from Reader and the main site.

Glitched text on main page and in Reader.

Thankfully, I had saved the screen caps for the tweet design below, so it was easy to make another pass with the two typography posters. I hope you enjoy them.

Accession

In a previous post, I mentioned that I was writing a coronation scene for a new novel. The story is set in 2033, and unfolds in the same universe as The Quarter Percent. We follow events from three perspectives. One belongs to Sebastian Sax-Gault, who happens to be a nephew of Cordial’s.

Whereas it hath pleased our Most Blessed Lady to recall to us Her glorious memory in the noble crown which is solely and rightfully come to the High Prince Carroll Patrice Saints Maud et Agnes:

Still drafting, but I know how the story ends. In the very last scene, after a bombshell revelation the previous evening, a hush falls over the nation on Coronation Day. The new monarch is Sebastian’s bestie, 35-year-old Carroll. In this draft of the story, Carroll’s father is still alive, so the proclamation of accession has to take place at the coronation.

Proclamation of accession (fiction).

By this point in the story, we have eavesdropped on meetings and know that the coronation will be stripped of pomp and pageantry. Sebastian has been asked to whittle down the government’s expenditure on the ceremony to mere shillings. The ceremony is a reckoning with the public which, after a display of hubris, has completely lost face. Nonetheless, the ordeal has been humiliating for Carroll.

Bless and sanctify thy servant Carroll, Inheritor of this realm, who we anoint and consecrate King. Imbue him with the wisdom of the Mighty Reformer Jonas, as we, with one voice, proclaim him King, Servant and Steward, with hearty and weighty affection.

The proclamation text is based on EIIR’s 1952 accession and 1953 coronation. (Read a short story inspired by the latter). As mentioned in that earlier post, Google was reading over my shoulder and recommended gospel music to me on YouTube. I made some artwork to display the text that was misunderstood. I hope you like it.

Note: This post was originally intended for publication on this date, 09/20, but I moved it up a week. I moved it back here to make way for a different post. Thank you for your attention, as always.
